Working Principle of Ball Mill

SBM is a high-tech enterprise, involved in research and development, production, sales and service as well. In the past 20 years, we are committed to the production of mining equipment, sand making equipment, industrial mill, provide highway, rail way and water conservancy engineering sand to make high-grade equipment and related solutions.

Working Principle of Ball Mill

Ball mill is the key equipment for materials smashing after the broken process is done. It is widely used in cement, silicate products, new building materials, refractory materials, fertilizer, ferrous and non-ferrous metals and glass ceramics and other production industries, a variety of ores and other grind-able materials can be dry or wet grinding. Ball mill can be applied to various kinds of minerals and other materials; furthermore, it is mainly used in beneficiation, building materials and chemical industries.

Working principle

Ball mills work by rotating around a horizontal axis. The raw material to be processed and the grinding medium will be lifted to a certain higher place by the force of centrifugal force and the friction force when the mill moves and then fallen down to the bottom because of the gravity in a parabolic path. This action will be repeat again and again .By doing so, the material to be processed can be crushed and grinding into fine aggregate. In this process , the raw material will be grinded by itself.

The ball mill is a horizontal rotating device transmitted by the outer gear. The materials are transferred to the grinding chamber through quill shaft uniformly. There are ladder liner and ripple liner and different specifications of steel balls in the chamber. The centrifugal force caused by rotation of barrel brings the steel balls to a certain height and impact and grind the materials. The ground materials are discharged through the discharging board thus the grinding process is finished.

The Operation Rules of the ball mills:

  1. The operators must be qualified with the required technical knowledge, receive technical training and fully understand the operating principle, performance and regulations of the ball mills.
  2. The operators should follow the operate principle and lubricate the requirement parts marked in lubrication picture. Untreated waste oil may not be used and keep lubrication points clean.
  3. Pay attention to check the temperature of bearing not to exceed 60° and make sure every bolt not loose, no abnormal sound, uniform mining feed, steady water feed, normal current, voltage of motor.
  4. To keep surroundings clean where the grinding mill run. Every party should be clean unless it’s running.
